About sml and internationalization

I am thinking about the issue to with allowing/disallowing
sets of Unicode characters in element type names as per XML

If SML has very few special tokens
e.g. "<", "&" and whitespace, what would happen
if any character outside this teeny weeny set is
allowed in an element type name.

I don't know enough about Unicode to say. I am
thinking about the problem of allowing arbitrary
Unicode in element type names yet side-stepping
the parser name validation tables.
